Free star-viewing event tonight at Starved Rock

NT Staff

Starved Rock State Park will host free star- and planet-viewing and astronomical programs tonight and Saturday as the Chicago Astronomical Society comes to the park and the park visitors center.

Around dusk tonight and Saturday, area residents can come to the entrance of the park campground south of Route 71 East in the middle of the park and view the heavens through telescopes set up by the astronomical society as part of its Astro Fest, a volunteer outreach, said park superintendent Mark McConnaughhay.

Visitors also can bring their own telescopes and go to an area set up for the society’s event, but if not camping, they won’t be allowed into the camping area.

Free talks are planned Saturday in the Pontiac Room in the visitors center, but as of 8 a.m. today he did not have exact times.
